Ed Note: “Muggle” is the animal control supervisor, not the pooch, which needs to be re-united with its owner.
Thank God she’s okay. If it were Kentucky, she’d be the Blue Plate Special by now.
According to William Muggle, animal control supervisor in East Providence, the driver of the Toyota was traveling about 50 mph on Route 44 near Segregansett Country Club on Sept. 20 when the dog — a white female, believed to be a poodle-mix — ran into the road.
Muggle said the driver then hit the brakes, and after not seeing the dog anywhere in the roadway, continued along Route 44 into Rhode Island believing he had not struck the dog with his vehicle.
Upon coming to a stoplight in East Providence, the driver was alerted to the dog being wedged in the front of his car by another driver on the road.
